Insects, birds, bats, and even monkeys, lemurs, and a lizard! About 75% of the world's flowering plants depend upon these animals for pollination. Most other plants rely upon wind to carry their pollen grains from plant to plant.

Pollination is the transfer of pollen within or between flowers (or between cones). Pollination leads to fertilization and eventually to seeds and new life!

We can survive on wind-pollinated plants such as corn, wheat, and other cereals, but we thrive when our diet includes fruits, vegetables, nuts, chocolate, and other foods produced by pollinators.

Habitat loss, pesticides, diseases, and invasive plants and animals can all harm pollinators.

You can help sustain pollinators:
· Plant flowers, vegetables, and trees that supply vital pollen and nectar.
· Use pesticides sparingly, if at all. Apply t night when most pollinators are inactive.
· Become informed: visit online sites such as
